Birch Press Design Background Dies: 2 for 1 Cards

Hi everyone!

I'm stopping by share a card set I made a couple of months ago using a number of the Birch Press Design Background Dies. I'm just getting around to sharing these cards now, lol. I used 5 of these layering die sets to create 10 different cards by using both the positive and negative cut pieces.

I found it easiest to start by placing the top frame piece down on my card front and adhering the coordinating squares (shapes) inside. In the case of the first cards that would be the kraft cardstock. I then placed the purple piece down and adhered the purple squares in place. Finally, I did the same with the pink. I removed the 'guide pieces' and adhered them together on another card front. I finished the cards all off with Simon's Stitched Rectangles Dies and a number of their 'painted' sentiment dies.

In this second set of cards I added Sherbert Shimmer Nuvo Glitter Drops instead of the pink die cut pieces.

Thanks for stopping by!

Nicely done! I just purchased the Delfina layering set 2 days ago. I'm looking forward to playing with it but it also looks a bit intimidating. Color choices , of course, will be key. As always, thanks for sharing.

Wow! They are fantastic and beautiful cards! I love the geometric look on each of them.
The die sets are quite pricey though ;)

I'm trying to resist buying anything new, but.... I love the color combo on the "Hugs" card, but they are all impressive.

Beautiful cards but the cost of the dies are prohibitive.
